From dense bushland to windswept beaches, Mornington Peninsula is a great add-on to a seaside holiday. And there's no shortage of lookouts marking the best views. It's a super family-friendly destination with plenty to keep the kids and the grown-ups busy and engaged. Drop by a winery, explore a maze garden or taste the delights around the Peninsula.
Beautiful beaches stretch for miles across the Morning Peninsula and one of our all-time family faves has to be McCrae beach, right in the heart of Rosebud. This is the quintessential beachy holiday spot – whether it’s a day trip, weekend away or summer holiday, McCrae beach has it all.
Renowned for being a kid-friendly spot; this picturesque setting gives our Qld beaches a run for their money with rolling sand-dunes, walking tracks galore, a soft, sandy (& patrolled) beach with calm crystal-clear blue waters that are ideal for swimming. Add gorgeous, colourful beach huts Victoria is famous for, nearby shops and cafes, plus a playground (look for the mini-lighthouse) it just may well become a favourite destination for you too!
If you ever find yourself in this beautiful part of the Mornington Peninsula then a stop-off to this sweet playground is a must! Surrounded by towering trees and with a scent of the nearby sea, it comes as no surprise that this playground has a bit of a nautical feel to it.
Grab a coffee to go from the Flinders Bakehouse Cafe opposite the park and head over to the park for a play. This lovely park features nature play elements with rock climbing poles, a little row boat, multi height monkey bars, sandpit, multiple slides, stepping stones, a cubby house and basketball court.
Boneo Maze is a real gem on the Peninsula. Think good old fashioned fun! There's so much to do here to keep everyone happy from the maze, giant lawn games, 18 holes of mini golf, a boardwalk through the wetlands, an adventure zone, a Lakeside cafe and all in a peaceful setting.
The 27 acre wetlands are a beautiful showcase of the Mornington Peninsula’s indigenous flora and fauna, including many species of frogs and water birds. As you wind through the boardwalk, listen to the sounds and spot some nature then you'll find your way to the fantastic games area complete with a beautiful carousel.
